Four commodities from eight countries were responsible for the loss of 3.9 million hectares of forest, an area about the size of Switzerland

“Four commodities produced in just eight countries are responsible for a third of the world’s forest loss, according to a new report.

Those familiar with the long-standing effort to stop deforestation won’t be surprised by the commodities named: beef, palm oil, soy, and wood products (including timber and paper).

Nor will they be very surprised by most of the countries: Brazil, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Papua New Guinea, Bolivia, Argentina, and Paraguay. “


Innovation Forum’s “How business can tackle deforestation – Collaborate effectively with suppliers and NGOs, understand policy and enforcement trends” takes place on 28th-29th October, 2014, London. (That’s next week people)
